Ed Sheeran has cancelled gigs, saying his cycling accident means he will not be able to perform live concerts for the immediate future.

The Suffolk singer, 26, previously posted an image of his arm in a cast and told his fans that he 'had a bit of a bicycle accident' and was 'waiting on some medical advice'.

Now he has updated his nearly 16 million Instagram followers to say that doctors found fractures in his right wrist and left elbow.

The message also told fans that Mr Sheeran 'isn't typing this' because both his arms were in a cast or bandage.
